Art Description

Painting: Acrylic, Metal on Canvas.

This painting depicts a hairdresser after her long, multi-coloured hair had been shaved off to raise awareness of human sex trafficking and to provide a monetary gift for The Mustard Tree Foundation’s Rahab Project: restoring hope and belief by identifying and supporting those affected by sexual exploitation. This painting shows the end stages of the public head shave in the hairdresser’s salon. The Gift I and The Gift II depict earlier stages of the process. Here the sitter looks increasingly reflective and slightly emotional, her subtle smile and the warm colours suggest positivity and comfort. The event had become increasingly emotional as fellow hairdressers shed tears over the sitter's sacrificial act. The sitter's faith was a considerable factor in her giving her 'gift', the increased contrast in tone and the warm yellow background suggest the spiritual element of this act.

25% of profits from sales (original and prints) will be donated to The Mustard Tree Foundation’s Rahab Project.
